Editor’s note: On a day that saw Third World nations threaten to walk out of the United Nations climate talks in Copenhagen over efforts to kill the Kyoto Protocol, climate activists staged what they called a “No Borders” protest outside the Danish Parliament. We’re all in this together, the demonstrators were saying on a day when, inside the talks, that sentiment was not an easy one to find. Here are some photos from the protest:
